FReeper Canteen ~ Sunday Chapel ~ WINNERS vs LOSERS ~ 29 April 2012
Serving The Best Troops and Veterans In The World !! | The Canteen Crew

Posted on 04/28/2012 4:59:19 PM PDT by Kathy in Alaska


 


 

 

 

WINNERS vs LOSERS


When a winner makes a mistake, he says, “I was wrong.”
When a loser makes a mistake, he says, “It wasn’t my fault.”

A winner always gives 110% no matter how big or small the task.
A loser is always “too busy” to do what is necessary and finds excuses.

A winner goes through a problem.
A loser goes around it, and never gets past it.

A winner makes commitments.
A loser makes promises.

A winner says, “I’m good, but not as good as I ought to be.” A loser says, “I’m not as bad as a lot of other people.”

A winner respects those who are superior to him and tries to learn something from them.
A loser resents those who are superior to him and spends time finding fault.

A winner feels responsible for more than his job.
A loser says, “I only work here.”

A winner says, “There ought to be a better way of doing it.”
A loser says, “That’s the way it’s always been done here."

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

A Long And Winding Path

April 29, 2012

Sometimes the path of life seems impossibly steep and lengthy. I have no strength and no will for the journey. Then I remember God knew this path long before I was called to walk it. He has always known the difficulties I would experience, the pain that I could never explain to another. He knows and offers His presence.

Perhaps you’re overwhelmed with sadness today. It may be the weight of a difficult ministry; the worry of a hard marriage; the sorrow of a struggling child; the care of an aging parent; other troubles that come with life. “Surely,” you say, “God would not have me walk this way. There must be another, easier path for me to travel.”

But are any of us wise enough to know that some other way would make us into better and wiser children? No, our Father in heaven knows the best path, out of all possible paths, to bring us to completion (Ps. 142:3).

His ways are higher than our ways; His thoughts higher than our thoughts (Isa. 55:9). We can humbly take the path He has marked out for us today, and do so in absolute trust in His infinite wisdom and love. He is wiser and more loving than we can ever know. He who sees has foreseen and will not lead us astray.

Be still and know that He is God
For pathways steep and rough;
Not what He brings, but what He is
Will always be enough. —Anon.
God will never lead you down a wrong path.

Read: Psalm 142

When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then You knew my path. —Psalm 142:3
Bible in a Year:
2 Chronicles 20-22

A Blessed Lord’s Day to you and yours, Mac...*HUGS*

Did you have to work? Forward progress?

Busy day here....many problems related to my Dad. He only wants to sleep, and he may have a touch of the flu...problems getting to the bathroom. You know the drill when you are mobility challenged. Lots of cleanup. One job lead to another. Trying to knock some things off my Mom’s list for my Dad.

Then 2 hours trying to clean up his email....almost 1600 unread.

Hope you are comfy and sitting back with maybe your cook son grilling for you.

Thanks very much, Kathy - did not go into work today. I woke up with a severe pain in my neck 3:00 a.m. Friday morning. Went to work yesterday and soldiered through - decided to call in today. Have rested and the pain is finally subsiding.

Tomorrow my son Daniel wants to plant the tomatoes and peppers. Will probably do so in the afternoon. Hard to believe that Tuesday is the first of May.

Today is a day of some significance to me - I arrived in country Vietnam 28April 1969. Twenty-one years old and no expectation of ever looking back on it from over 40 years away. Life is good.

He Who blessed our forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob - may He bless the fighters of the Israel Defense Force, who stand guard over our land and the cities of our G-d from the border of the Lebanon to the desert of Egypt, and from the Great Sea unto the approach of the Aravah, on the land, in the air, and on the sea.

May HASHEM cause the enemies who rise up against us to be struck down before them. May the Holy One, Blessed is He, preserve and rescue our fighting men from every trouble and distress and from every plague and illness, and may He send blessing and success in their every endeavor.

May He lead our enemies under their sway and may He grant them salvation and crown them with victory. And may there be fulfilled for them the verse: For it is Hashem, your G-d, Who goes with you to battle your enemies for you to save you.

G-d bless and keep your children safe, Alouette.

Aloha Doc!

Sunday is a good day to plant peppers and tomatoes and saying a small prayer that you have no inclement weather, which can be a pain in the neck too.

I arrived in the P.I on Easter 1969 but it wasn't Easter there. I'd crossed the date line so it was April 7th. Off to TADs and TDYs a short time after. (I didn't remember the date, just that it was Easter but I always remember the date I left SE Asia; 8/7/71 and the day I was separated, Friday the Thirteenth.) Life is a good challenge, cherish it.

PRAYERS GOING UP FOR OUR AMERICAN HEROES AND FOR OUR BELOVED NATION!







GEN. GEORGE WASHINGTON AND THE MARQUIS DE LAFAYETTE AT VALLEY FORGE

In the coldest and darkest days of the American Revolution, General George Washington raised his prayers for the survival of his beleaguered Army and of the new Nation. The Lord answered those prayers, upheld his Army through a punishing nadir to everlasting glory and bestowed His manifold benefits upon the new Nation.

In like manner, let our prayers now rise for our heroes in the American military who seek to secure the benefits of Freedom on behalf of a people hungry for them. Father, look on our prayers for them with favor, guide their steps in righteousness and keep them in the shelter of Your Healing Wings. Bless and uphold them in the performance of their Mission. Through Jesus Christ, Your Son, Amen.




SHADOWS AT ARLINGTON

Heavenly Father, Lord of the Nations, unto Your Divine Mercy we commend the souls of these who have fallen in the service of our Beloved Nation and in defense of the freedoms we hold dear. We pray that You gather them in Your loving embrace, that You cause Your countenance to shine upon them and that You vouchsafe their souls to dwell eternally in Your Divine Presence. Through Your Son, Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever, Amen.

They Preserve Our Freedom Through Their Service And Sacrifice!


PRAYER TO ST. MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL

Sancte Michael Archangele,
defende nos in proelio; contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium.
Imperet illi Deus, supplices deprecamur:
tuque, Princeps militiae Caelestis,
satanam aliosque spiritus malignos,
qui ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in mundo,
divina virtute in infernum detrude.
Amen.

Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host -
by the Divine Power of God -
cast into hell, Satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.
Amen.

Pope Leo XIII

GOD BLESS AND PROTECT OUR TROOPS!





Amazing Grace
by John Newton

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.
.
’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, .
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed!
.
Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
.
The Lord has promised good to me,
His Word my hope secures;
He will my Shield and Portion be,
As long as life endures.
.
Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
.
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, Who called me here below,
Will be forever mine.
.
When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’d first begun.

GOD BLESS AND PROTECT OUR TROOPS!



The Lord’s Prayer – Andrea Bocelli

DEAR GOD, who suffered torment, agony,
and death upon the Cross to free our souls
from the chains of iniquity, protect and defend
our troops. Guide them in the performance of
their duties. Strengthen them to endure hard-
ship, danger and deprivation in Your service. Let
their efforts free the people of Iraq and Afghan-
istan from the chains of terror and slavery,
foster a lasting peace in the region, and bring all
to a greater share in Your Mercy.
Amen.
